Absolutely gorgeous area to trail ride and the horse are about as "bomb proof" as you can get yet are very responsive. Four of us went out last week with Sebastian and had a wonderful time. He is a great trail guide and incredible horseman.

This is a terrific way to spend a morning or afternoon when visiting Cuenca, Ecuador. The facility is located a short drive from Cuenca (about 20 minutes) about $10 USD by taxi. Once there, Sebastian, the English fluent owner will welcome you and ascertain your riding ability and select a horse from "never rode" to expert and everything in between.... More

I had a wonderful morning ride with Sébastien. He really cares about his horses and the safety of his customers. The scenery is beautiful and an authentic glimpse in to what Ecuadorian countryside life is like. The only suggestion I will make is that it would be nice if Sébastien had a number or two of a taxi driver that... More

We leave Cuenca soon so wanted to do something exciting before we left. Our friends were not really interested but at the last minute we decided to go. Sebastian was so accommodating and helpful. He fit us in and we were so glad we went! The horses were very responsive and gentle. The place was beautiful! The scenery was incredible!... More

My wife and daughter went horsebacking for approx. 2hrs. My Son and I followed the trail. I was told the horses were great along with the guide. The trail went along a ridge that gave a beautiful view in both sides. If you decide to walk it be prepared it was well over 6 mile hike.

I was staying in Cuenca and looking for interesting things to do. I went to Ingapirca with a nice tour company (Arutam), and they did an amazing job. But for this, although there are many tour groups that will take you horseback riding, they charge you double the price to basically drive you to this ranch and let the ranch... More

We learned about Centro Ecuestre Bellavista by checking the "to-do's" recommended in Trip Advisor for Cuenca. It definitely is a unique experience that you should not miss. Sebastian, the owner of a complex, took us in a two-hour trip to the mountains that surrounds the place. Simpy, it is beautiful.

My husband and I went on a two hour ride with Sebastian - actually it ended up being more like 2.5 hours, so we felt like we got more than our money's worth. We climbed up up and up to the most amazing vistas. The horses were lovely and well cared for, and easy to ride. I'm a little nervous... More

A great way to start your morning! All the good comments are absolutely true! The horseback rides are around the country side of Tarqui, which is 20 minutes away from Cuenca. The horses are beautiful, well taken care of, well mannered and have personalities of their own, which if you wish you can learn all about. The views you see... More

We picked this horseriding centre as a direct result of other Trip Advisor Reviews, and we were not disappointed. Two middle aged novices were made very welcome, given very patient and mild mannered horses and guided for two hours around some stunning hills and farmland. Sebastian made us very welcome ( the setting of the centre is beautiful ) and... More
